The PGA Tour Driving Distance average rose just a bit from 288.12 after the BellSouth to 288.6 yards. That's nearly 9 yards longer than last year at this point.
There were 12 over-350 or longer drives, bringing the season total to 844. The average percentage of over-300 yard drives rose from 23.8% to 24.04%.
With ShotLink coming to the Augusta National for the first time, it will be interesting to see if the PGA Tour includes the Masters in this year's statistics.
